The five boroughs of New York City are Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island. All areas of New York State have county names, but New York City also has borough (boro) names for its five counties. Two of the borough names are the same as the county names and three are different. Virtually everybody uses the borough names. The county names are just used for legal and government purposes. Below I have listed the names of the five boroughs, together with their county names for easy reference.

Borough Name--------County Name
Manhattan----------------New York City
Brooklyn-------------------Kings
Staten Island-------------Richmond
The Bronx------------------Bronx
Queens--------------------Queens

Northwest of Brooklyn and Queens is Manhattan, which is often referred to as "the city." Harlem is a part of Manhattan and is not a borough; it is a neighborhood. North of Manhattan is the Bronx. And then the least populated borough, southwest of Manhattan, west of Brooklyn and Queens is Staten Island. Staten Island and Manhattan are both their own islands. The Bronx is the only borough on mainland New York. Brooklyn has the most people, and Queens is the biggest borough in land area.
